Free stuff and Walmart savings

I just couldn't resist bragging a little bit. I won 8 months of FREE soy milk from "Today's Soymilk, 8th Continent"! I was beyond thrilled when I checked my mail and had a letter along with a TON of coupons for free soymilk. As you know by now, I have become a BARGAIN shopper. Finding a good soymilk bargain can be pretty hard to come by, especially as often as we go through it in our house. I entered this promotional contest a few months ago with hopes that I would win, but really forgot about it as it has been a while. Little did I know what would be coming my way! So, THANKS A TON 8th Continent - we love your soymilk!!!

I also know how you all like looking a photos of my shopping sprees, so here is a new one for you. The photo above is of a recent trip that I made to walmart. I was able to purchase these 22 items for only $43.00. (These items all retail for over $83.00 - that's a $40.00 savings!) I was able to use a coupon for every item that you see in the photo (with the exception of the toys). Some of my super deals are as follows:

There were some great markdown on toys, so I decided to grab a few to save for the holidays and the boys' bithday. They were priced SO LOW, it was hard to just pick out the items that I did!

Eating like BIG boys!

The boys have a new "trick" they can pretty much eat by themselves! The photos that you see at the top were taken at the beginning of their lunch. The photos you see below were taken towards the end of their lunch. It can get pretty messy, but they have to learn. Right? They are getting better at it each day.
